Concise, brief 15-page fallout prediction model, covering both land surface and underwater nuclear explosions, radiation shielding by buildings, fallout solubility as function of particle size, retention on vegetation, gamma ray spectrum versus time, fractionation of fission products, salting by cobalt-60 etc., and effects of environmental neutron induced activities in fallout. Includes literature summaries and data reductions to formulae based on many reports. Topics: nuclear weapons, radioactive fallout, fallout, underwater bursts
Dr Carl F. Miller, "A Theory of Decontamination of Fallout from Nuclear Detonations. Part II. Methods for Estimating the Composition of Contaminated Systems", U.S. Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory, report USNRDL-466, 29 September 1961, originally Secret - restricted data. Contains the vital 1950s data on the fractionation of volatile radionuclides (the depletion of gaseous I-131, Cs-137, Sr-89, Sr-90, and their precursors, which don't condense or decay into solids by the time the...

Listed at the National Archives as "Atomic Tests In Nevada, 1955." No description at the National Archives but this is an Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) film, "Atomic Tests In Nevada: The Story of AEC's Continental Proving Ground," which is about atomic testing fallout near St. George, Utah. Decades later, St. George residents suffered increased incidence of cancer (BBC documentary "The Dragon that Slew St. George.")

Civil Defence Evacuation Planning Fear mongers must seek to censor free speech and engineer a climate of hateful lies that inspire murders and violence, not factual debates that lead to progress, education and peace, and to party political or Marxist driven hate attacks on civil defence that could help to protect Syrians and others under attack instead of having them driven out of their own country by fear and violence without any effective protection. Is that peace? U.S. President John F.... Topics: Evacuation, Civil Defence, Civil Defence Evacuation, Civil Defence Corps, Nuclear Weapons, Nuclear...
